Even though I was in Abuja for only two days, but perhaps Nordic Villa was the highlight of my trip. Very helpful and friendly staff, and suitable place for a short time stay and work. They tried their best to make sure the guests are comfortable and accommodated properly.

This is my second review of the Nordic Villa - and my motivation for writing, on this occasion, is the excellent service at the hotel. I traveled to Abuja for work and last-minute changes to my schedule meant changing my reservations two times before arriving - each change handled in a friendly and professional manner. I was very happy that the hotel management was so accommodating (Thanks Fortune!) - and I found the staff on this visit also very friendly and helpful. I really don't know why anyone would pay twice or three times more money to stay at the large "brand name" hotels in Abuja (and I've stayed at each of them at least once, before discovering the Nordic Villa. This hotel is in a quiet and safe neighborhood - it is clean, well designed, with good internet and large rooms (my room, the "Stockholm," had an armchair and a small sofa and a very big bathroom.

Room Tip: I like the "deluxe" rooms - Aarhus and Stockholm are both quite large and nice.

As anybody know who have travelled to Nigeria in general, finding affordable, clean accommodation, can be like finding the Holy Grail. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the Nordic. The rooms are clean and simply furnished, the staff are friendly and helpful and best about it, it is well priced. Wireless access is included so I could get some work done and the breakfast is served punctually, so none of that departure anxiety, worrying that you are going to miss your flight.

Abuja is not known for good value in hotels so I was glad to find Nordic Villa upon the recommendation of a colleague (who found it on Trip Advisor, BTW). Nice, clean, spacious, friendly, good cup of coffee in the morning, plumbing actually works. A bit out of the way and there is nothing substantial in the neighbourhood. The only downside to my stay was the spotty internet connection which is on one minute, off the next. This is my hotel of choice for future visits to Abuja; it was much more pleasant than two better-known places I have stayed.

Very nice place to stay, very clean.Exceptional manners from the staff. Leave your key at the front desk so the room gets cleaned as you leave for the day (I didn't get that until they finally told me!) No worries about your belongings, but if you do worry they have a safe in every room. They don't have a restaurant, but they have a service that will bring you food for N1000 which is really cheap. AND if you give them more than what it costs, perhaps you have a N1000 note and only need a N500, they wi;ll bring you the change. From my experience they are good people. Power fluctuates, as you would expect, but they have generators that are on-line as quick as you can blink. I'd give this place 5 stars for Nigeria. I'm heading to Lagos tomorrow morning, I'm told I'll be glad I stayed in such a nice place as the Nordic Villa.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Thorshaven room, It was fine for me. Good for a single or couple, not with kids.

My first stay at the Nordic Villa was really a memorable one. I had spent hours trying to get a quiet and clean hotel in Abuja. The Nordic was my third try and we (my family and I) were pleasantly surprised.The environment was serene and just right. The room was nice and pretty.
Ever since I have booked well in advance.
Variety in the food menu should be considered please.

Room Tip: Like the Pori room. Nice

The Nordic Villa is a very welcoming hotel run by friendly and professional staff. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe there. My only suggestion would be to add more options to the breakfast menu beyond toasts & jam and eggs, e.g. cereals. Also, it would be nice to be able to have dinner at the hotel.

The hotel offers good value for money and I will stay there again.

Room Tip: I spent 7 nights in the Helsinki Room, 1 in the Oslo and 1 in the Stockholm. They were all clean and...
